    My joy was very short lived , the seller refunded my money with no explanation and relisted it :???: Reckon he wasn't happy with the price, still i sent him a message saying i'll either get it for the price i paid or i'm gonna report him to eBay and get it anyway :hyst We'll see what he says !

    I thought them wheels looked good when you first put a picture up, they look even better on the car, nice ride height to, with the rear spacers on that is going to look gorgeous.

    Thanks everyone !

    TripleOG , they're roughly et53 all round mate, i'm not sure myself (never checked) ! There's no rubbing which is a good thing. They're 8.5 front and 9 on the back, not really wide but there's always room for improvement :]

    Thanks mate !

    I have to confess though , that picture was just a photoshop ! Sorry !

    Here's the real deal :)



    Literally just rinsed it a little bit so it doesnt look as filthy !

    Next i need to fit the rear spacers for a bit of poke on the back, will go well with the tuck on the front :bleh:

    Could do with going a bit lower on the front but need to get rid of the undertray first. This is not even half way down the thread on coils on the front :eek: Rear is down all the way but with adjusters still in, will see what it looks like with 20mm spacers on.

    Cheers

    Thanks mate, got something coming for the front end soon as well :)

    Stance should be spot on with spacers on the back and a touch lower on the front maybe since the undertray is hanging off already

    Not much of an update really, got myself a new steering wheel :p


    Nothing too flash, would love a flat bottom MFSW but i'm not paying £500 for one - too dear do tbh !

    This is pretty similar to the one i got in now, though it's got white/cream stitching ( hint hint ;) ) , silver bits to go with the rest of the interior and S Line badge. Dunno if it's smaller than the one i got in now , we shall see.

    before anyone mentions, i've got 18mm hubcentric spacers in the boot to go on the back - hopefully the rear will sit hellaflush y0!

    Thanks for looking :)

    Those are some unusual offsets mate, and 8.75???? looks sweet with the spacers on anyway but be carfull how much lower you go as when you hit a bump or carry a passenger your tyres will rub on your arch.

    want to space mine a touch more now :arco:
